The Republic of Universal State Formula is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.451 billion citizens of Universal State Formula are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City Prime. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Universal State Formula economy, worth a remarkable 6,237 trillion Standard Monetary Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 738,094 Standard Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Quiet professionalism has returned to the nation's armed forces, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", citizens spend millions on microtransactions to feed virtual orphans while actual orphans starve overseas, and it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Universal State Formula's national animal is the Leviathan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Universal State Formula is ranked 14th in the world and 2nd in The North Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 193,734.23 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
